In late August of 2012 a group of us launched the first "Art of Participatory Leadership and Social Innovation" event in California. This intensive was a 3-day program designed to help us learn simple yet powerful processes that build community, activate collective intelligence and foster individual and collaborative leadership practices.
Forward thinking leaders and other innovators showed up who were seeking higher impact ways to engage, inspire, and activate innovation and business value within their teams and stakeholders.
We spent three days together and learned simple yet powerful leadership and communication techniques that tap into the inspiration and collective brainpower of teams, and sparked and sustained our imagination to drive innovative thinking and foster high value output within our organization.
We work on our very own unique and pressing challenges (not our predetermined ones). We left equipped with confidence, capabilities and a seriously comprehensive resource manual so that we could apply all that we did at work the the next business day.
We connected with other emerging and evolving leaders, entrepreneurs and social innovators from California and around the world. Great ripples of action and synergy were found by collaborating with this exciting network of energetic and passionate people.
